Ranveer Singh finally talks about his role in 'Padmavati'Sep 19, 2017 Abhishree Kulkarni
There is always a suspense around Sanjay Leela Bhasali’s film before its release, as no actors ever talk about their roles till the film is released. Same is the case with his magnum opus ‘Padmavati’, which is all set to release in the coming months.
Ranveer Singh will be playing the role of an antagonist – Alauddin Khilji, in the film finally spoke about his role in an interview. Ranveer said, “It was a very difficult character to play. I am a people pleaser, admittedly. I like to spread cheer and laughter. I like to keep the atmosphere light – even if it means making stupid jokes and acting silly and crass. But, when I became Alauddin Khilji for the movie, there’s no trace of that person. Some actors are that way, where the external starts to affect the internal. At some point during filming, everybody realized that at one point in the morning you’ll have Ranveer and the rest of the day will be Khilji. My whole energy changed. Which is good, because at least I know I’m doing an honest job in the film. But, yeah, I’m almost done now and I have to say what I told myself holds true to some extent. All the darkness has been lived out, it’s been addressed. It’s almost like therapy.”
‘Padmavati’ also features Ranveer Singh’s alleged girlfriend Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor in lead roles.
